    Clicking on "email us" tries to open outlook instead of windows ma

    Everytime I try to contact a company through their website "email us" button
    this tries to open up outlook express 2003, instead of windows mail. Windows
    mail is the default mail handler for my computer. How do I get these "email
    us" buttons to open up Windows mail?

    The message I get when it tries to open up Outlook express is "Cannot open
    Microsoft Office Outlook. MAPI32,DLL is corrupt or the wrong version. This
    could have been caused by installing other messaging software. Please
    reinstall Outlook."

    I have tried uninstalling Office Outlook express, reinstalling Outlook and
    none of this has made any difference.

    Help!

    Click Start, select Default Programs
    Click Set program access and computer defaults
    Click Custom, and select Windows Mail
    Click OK

    Then, follow these steps:

    Click Set your default programs
    Select your mail client from the list
    Click Set this program as default
    Click OK
